Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Jetta 2.5L rear brake failure in June 2007 resulted in accident where I was unable to stop and vehicle was hit driver's side. Reported to VW and was told it was normal failure. Brakes continue to function intermittently (grinding, squealing, seizing) December 2008 rear brakes replaced (30,000kms) at my expense as VW has refused to acknowledge this as an issue. August 2007 clutch fails and vehicle is taken to VW for repairs. Advised it was normal wear and tear (18,000kms) and would not be covered under warranty. Had clutch inspected by a clutch manufacturer who advises parts failed as a result of improper installation. VW issues refund after legal action is pursued. Have had vehicle inspected at independent mechanic who agrees with sub standard workmanship and parts on this model.
